I don't know if it's a Chrome thing (what I'm using now), but whenever I click on a link in this forum, the new page appears in the same browser tab and it'd be better in a new tab.

What do you think?

Ooooo! How to divide the forum....

For the quick links and other links within the forum, I prefer to open in the same tab. For external links, yes, often it is helpful to open in a new tab.

We won't mention that I can quickly go from about three open tabs to about 33 in the blink of an eye... :lol: :oops:

It should absolutely be controlled by the user, not the forum.

Just press CTRL while clicking and it will open in a new tab.

OK, I have installed a new extension which sets external links to open in a new window. I have given it a test and it seems to work OK.

For those who have an interest in these things, this is the homepage (Thanks to Ricardo for spotting this one).
